The piece of code you mentioned first did EXACTLY the right thing for my site as well. Thank you so much for posting it!
One final nit-picky question: is it possible to make the (Atahualpa) blog home page (or the primary page) tab be the SECOND tab listed? I've been able to re-order the other pages in the correct hierarchy through the Pages function, but I don't see how to rearrange the order of the primary blog page.
I'm redesigning the blog for my publication, and the page tabs each link to pages back on the existing homepage in the menu bar, which is already in a set order at www.outfrontcolorado.com
. (That menu bar is the order I need to mimic.)
Essentially, what I need to do is switch the first and second page tabs on my menu bar at www.outfrontcolorado.com/blog
I'm running WP 2.8.3 with Atahualpa 3.4.2.
My guess is this is a simple fix, I'm just missing something. Thank you for your help and this fantastic theme and forum.
